A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: People in Calverton have spoke and we’ve listened. We’ll continue to provide a visible presence in Calverton and respond to concerns raised by members of the public living, working and visiting the area.

On Friday (May 24) officers also gathered on Longdale Lane in Ravenshead with volunteers from the Community Road Safety team to conduct speed checks.

Speed checks were conducted between 17:30 and 19:15 hours on Longdale Lane by the Leisure Centre.

Police said a number of vehicles were doing over 35mph on hitting the speed gun, however they had slowed down by the time they had hit the second interactive sign.

Only one vehicle was caught doing over 35mph all the way through the monitoring zone, the driver was pulled over by Police and words of advice were given on this occasion.

A spokesman added: “The local Neighbourhood Policing team will continue supporting the Community Road Safety Scheme in Ravenshead, with numerous dates being put in the diary for the future.”
